SYDNEY HASH HOUSE HARRIERS
Jack the Ripper’s Run Report 13th May 2019 Run 2708
The Run : Your Hares; Colonel Sanders and Duckweave
The Boyz gathered in the park at the back of the Willoughby pub, many were early, excited by the hares’ promises of virgin territory. After 40 years, when will they learn ?…
The bucket was all set up, so some wags wanted to skip the run.
Away we went, a few checks in streets then the runners were into a park and greeted by hair Duckweave and encouraged to jump on the Slippery Dip ! yes there is a 25 metre slippery dip in a park in Willoughby, its down a steep slope. It is a pleasure to report that all but one of the runners went down the slippery dip, they are living proof that the Posh refuse to grow up. Some travelled at speeds faster than a speeding bullet and the camera shutter speed, (my excuse).. a couple were cautious and used their shoes to brake,.. Goonshow used Bucky’s back to brake !! Which created a neighbourhood disturbance of some magnitude. Captain Bligh went down headfirst, hope this is not indicative of his financial management of our funds !! ….. then off we went into the darkness. A visitor on the night from Californication Larrikin Hash called ‘Baa Means No’, (Definitely not a Kiwi where ‘Baa means Yes’); he is also known as Will and a navel officer, anyway he ran and could probably run for 2 days…fit as …..
The runners ran/ walked on lots of well marked trails, through parks, reserves, lanes cycleways and everywhere else, avoiding roads, especially busy roads, just what we Love !
A good winter run using known territory and linked together well
Young boys on a slippery dip ! safety
vests light up on camera like fire-works.
(be safe not photogenic)
We went around Artarmon Reserve and every park in the neighbourhood and a really good check-back which took us between some backyards and under the freeway and eventually home to a welcoming bucket.
The On On was at one of our favourite restaurants the Berempah on Willoughby Road, our hosts worked hard, their usual capacity is 34 and with our tables and chairs 44 squeezed, in though Bucky and some others had to sit on eskies and a couple left. the food was at its usual high standard, the chuiwauwa was a favourite. It was a pleasure to see Mr Neat, aka Long Chance, who is slowly recovering, he drove himself to the onon.
